Blue-blood says biofuel is green
Writing in the Guardian Oxburgh, a former non-executive director of Royal Dutch Shell
Monbiot has argued that the widespread cultivation of plants for biofuel could cause starvation.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, "Lord" Oxburgh also appears to be in favour of manual labour for the plebs: "Cultivation and fruit picking by hand is labour-intensive and needs around one person per hectare. In parts of rural India and Africa this provides much-needed jobs – about 200,000 people worldwide now find employment through jatropha."
